 something thirty? 1.30, 2.30, and so on? 14:07 Wed 28th Sep 2011 Question Author There can only be one answer. 14:08 Wed 28th Sep 2011 7pm or 7AM once six hours have passed with a 12 hour clock 14:09 Wed 28th Sep 2011 Question Author Rowanwitch that makes little to no sense. What do you mean? 14:11 Wed 28th Sep 2011 What about 12:30? 14:14 Wed 28th Sep 2011 a clock measures 12 hours half of the clock is when 6 hours have passed 14:15 Wed 28th Sep 2011 Question Author Hmmm very interesting. I will be getting back to you with which answer if any was correct. 14:20 Wed 28th Sep 2011 I'd go with 12.30 Example: Half way between 6 o'clock and 7 o'clock would we 6 1/2 o'clock (although we call it 6.30 or half past 6) .... so similarly, half way between 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock would be could 12 1/2 o'clock OR half a clock 'cos 12 o'clock is sometimes written as 00.00 on the 24 hour clock ..... sounds good to me anyway lol :) 22:28 Wed 28th Sep 2011 I would say it's twelve thirty a.m. . At sea the time is always given as 18.30 hours or 22.30 hours, therefor twelve thirty a.m. would be 00.30. 16:10 Sat 01st Oct 2011 any time after 29 minutes past the hour? 16:13 Sat 01st Oct 2011 "7pm or 7AM once six hours have passed with a 12 hour clock " I'm still trying to work this one out rowanwitch. Yes- 1.00 is 6 hours after 1.00 but I can't see why you chose 1.00 as the starting point. Kingmushroom- how has the question arisen? Who has asked the question? That might give a clue as to the sort of answer that's wanted. Thanks 20:47 Sat 01st Oct 2011 I'd say 6 o'clock - the only time the two hands exactly divide a clock face in half. 20:51 Sat 01st Oct 2011 By this way of thinking [dividing clock in half] it could be 12.30 as well as 6 o'clock. and at least 12.30 mentions 'half o clock'. The 'clock' referring to the 12. What o'clock is it? means What time is it? [of the clock] 00:00 Mon 17th Oct 2011
